Out of the beaten path local experience in Guangzhou


In this tour we are not going to visit major tourist attractions, but to explore and understand local people's culture and life in the city, we will visit the pedestrian street(where locals walk and shop), vegetable markets, local neighborhood buildings to see how the locals spend their time in daily life. And you'll have a chance to visit my home(in a local community) to talk and interact with my parents(they are Cantonese opera lovers who went through the "cultural revolution" in their young ages). ^_^.

The tour incorporates both driving and walking, and trying the yummy Cantonese local street food.

Check out the suggested itinerary below, but contact me if you have special requests.

A Recent Review of this tour

Xaq brought us around Guangzhou for his local neighbourhood tour and it really gave us insights into the city that we would have never seen by just visiting the tourist attractions. Very knowledgeable and fluent in multiple languages, made it a very interesting tour overall. Tour is also highly flexible to suit our interests and needs. If you're new to Guangzhou, Xaq is a very good choice to introduce you to the city. Hightly recommended!
